Byron holiday park wins award
CLARKES Beach Holiday Park was awarded a prestigious Environmental Award at the annual Award of Excellence on July 28.
Clarke’s beach was awarded the Land and Property Management Authority Environmental Excellence Award for Holiday Parks at the Caravan and Camping Industry Association of NSW (CCIA) Awards of Excellence Gala Dinner at The Sheraton on the Park in Sydney.
Barry Baillie, CEO of the CCIA says that the Awards of Excellence recognise caravan and holiday parks, manufactured home villages and estates, caravan and RV manufacturers and dealers as well as industry suppliers across 26 categories for business excellence.
“The Awards of Excellence is the industry’s highlight event which recognises business excellence in the caravan and camping sector and is the highest accolade that a caravan, RV or camping business can achieve.”
Judges were exceedingly impressed with Clarkes Beach Holiday Park and the way that the park has taken passive design to a new level.
Individual considerations were given to each cabins orientation to maximise natural lighting, heating and cooling, while site placement ensures minimal vegetation disturbance.
“Water harvesting at each cabin and solar panels producing power for the office further reduces the parks impacts. While dune regeneration that extends well beyond the parks boundaries is assisting with not just biodiversity conservation, but maintaining a culturally significant site” said Barry Baillie.
